Shady can miss whatever he wants.  He takes care of his business on and off the field.  The only other player I'd say that about is Kyle Williams. 

Off the field is a bit questionable...

Overall I think we have not had a head coach like this really ever at OBD. I like McD's style, demeanor and energy. I did not feel like this with either Doug or Rex...this just feels different.
As a fellow coach and talent evaluator, he is saying all the right things and posturing himself in a way that conveys strength and wisdom. Now that combination we have had here before, and that resulted into some serious wins.

I know you have to have the players too, but man without good leadership you can't even sniff championships these days. Let's just hope that he has the full support of the organization and Whaley either knows his place and backs down a bit or Terry and Kim give him the boot. Either way I think McD should be running the show until proven otherwise.

Does the NFL have something equivalent to the NIT now, or am I missing something?

I think the marketing department may be on to a new slogan " we are playoff caliber"

I don't have kids but I have only worked my own birthday once in the 12 years of my working life.... and that was unavoidable because the legislation I was responsible for was in front of a Parliamentary committee.  Usually I take my birthday off.

You would sign up for voluntary overtime instead of your kid's b-day?  Hope that's not common.  Dadz these days!

Chad Kelly we keep giving chances to but productive players like Shady we give snark. Why is that?

@jayskurski
McDermott: "I'm a big believer in doing things right off the field." Interesting comment to remember with draft season approaching. #Bills


That can mean a lot of different things (see the debates on football character)

How much of a big deal is it really? Is he constantly in trouble? Did it hurt the team? Did it show in his performance? What is the concern exactly?

Calm down, I was just commenting on the posters claim that Shady takes care of his business on and off the field.  He has had a few incidents off the field that have been in poor taste, IMO.

It's just funny how certain players off field stuff remains a thing more than others.
